  • This 100 000 m² project for Paris's new High Court works as a vertical and compact district, criss-crossed by a network of suspended hallways. These halls unfold above an existing industrial hangar. They are a replica of the three naves that form together, so as to articulate the various flows of users: magistrates, the public, and accused people. These passages include large common spaces and provide the visual bearings necessary to find one’s way in such a large building. They are carved out of the massive volume of the building, which defines the court of justice more as an absence of building than a building as such. They make the overall infrastructure function as a horizontal tower with expansive floors on every level, while allowing light into the circulation cores and a systematic division of levels into compartments. Inside each pole, civil and penal, secondary relationships are created through a series of escalators following the principle of “free-form section.”
  • Ce palais de justice pharaonique de 100 000 m² fonctionnecomme un quartier compact et vertical, sillonné par un réseau de ruessuspendues. Ces rues se déploient à l'aplomb d'une halle industrielleexistante. Elles répliquent ses trois nefs pour articuler les différents fluxd'usagers: les magistrats, le public et les prévenus. Elles intègrent lesgrands espaces communs et procurent les repères visuels nécessaires pours'orienter. Creusées dans l'épaisse masse du tribunal, elles le définissent pluscomme une absence de bâtiment que comme un bâtiment. Elle lui procurent lefonctionnement d'une tour horizontale – une tour qui bénéficient de grandsplateaux libres, mais qui ne souffre pas de noyaux aveugles et d'uncompartimentage systématique en niveaux. A l'intérieur de chaque pôle, civil etpénal, les relations secondaires s'établissent ensuite selon un principe de «coupe libre ».
